Speaking to public broadcaster ERT, he underlined that the hospitals are 90% full with cases from the Delta mutation, while in the new cases, Omicron dominates with 62%, commented Ms. Pagoni.
The goal is for the cases of Omicron to recover at home with mild symptoms and not to burden the Health system and the vaccination helps in that, stressed the president of EINAP.
